Huron principal right to stop 'dirty dancing'

Anonymous • Feb 17, 2013 at 8:23 AM

Excerpt from the editorial Viewpoint in today's Sunday Register: It seems these school officials are damned if they do, damned if they don’t when it comes to managing student behavior at school dances.

We think Huron High School principal Scott Matheny did the right thing earlier this month when he refused to allow students to 'dirty dance' during a school-sponsored event.

Parents entrust the schools with their children, and it’s up to school officials to make sure students are acting appropriately.

It’s not up to them to guess whose parents will or won’t approve. They have to set a standard appropriate for a school function, which rightly should err on the conservative side.

If parents want to host a private party and take responsibility for the teens’ behavior, they can do so. But we totally stand with school officials in requiring these students to act like young ladies and gentlemen while they’re at a school function.

Some of these teens might even thank them for it once they become old fuddy-duddies — like us.
